There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Leo-and-Leo interaction is not as easy as one might assume when a sign meets one of his or her own. As the “I perform” sign of the Zodiac, these individuals need to shine, compete, lead, and be creative. A long-term relationship might prove difficult because they both want at least 51% of the attention, which can be fine with other signs. But, as you can see, the math does not add up. This combination can lead to something as dramatic as, “this relationship isn’t big enough for the both of us”.
Leo Parent/Leo Child
The Leo parent and Leo child can work okay because of the power differences. The Leo child can learn the energy of his or her Leo nature with the help of a Leo parent. And the Leo parent can experience raising a child that needs exactly their kind of guidance. But do not be surprised if you see a Leo parent competing to win with his or her Leo child, which can range from a teachable moment to full-on “I must win and show who is best no matter what”. If competition and the pursuit of recognition do not get out of hand, these two can share a lot of adventures, good times, and victory/losses together.
Leo Friend/Leo Friend
Leo and Leo friends can work once they determine who is the better performer and keep their natural urge to compete friendly. Like Cancer and Cancer, these individuals will do better in a large group or somehow working in tandem where the recognition comes from the partnership, like tag-team wrestlers. Still, in the long run, this relationship can be fraught with moments of insecurity, where one or the other is getting more or “better” recognition, which can lead to some unfortunate interactions. Generally speaking, one Leo in a friendship group is usually enough, for Leo, and everyone else.
Leo Lover/Leo Lover
This romance, love, sex combination will be intense, romantic, playful, and potentially explosive! Jealousy is the emotion these two will have to manage; otherwise, the competition for attention can get well out of hand. Should they be able to keep the jealous feelings and narcissistic tendencies at bay, they can enjoy a fun-filled and exciting relationship that others will envy, which will make them both very happy. They just need to make sure their budget can handle their wants, and their egos can handle sharing.
Leo Employer/Leo Employee
The Leo employer and the Leo employee can be problematic depending on the maturity of the Leos involved. It will be important for the Leo employee to remember that he or she is the understudy and they should never show up their boss, even if they can and want to. Best for them to look for work elsewhere when it becomes apparent that the company is not big enough for both of them. The Leo boss can be the “fun and friendly” boss so long as the employee helps them shine.
Leo Co-worker/Leo Co-worker
These two had better have a manager or employer who knows they need a certain number of other co-workers to interact with so as not to find themselves in competition for the attention of their fellow employees or accolades from the company. On the other hand, if you want to find out which employee can come out on top and get the most for the company, putting two Leos together, competing for a prize or recognition, can lead to spectacular results, along with some pretty over the top infighting.
